A trop­i­cal es­cape

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Marketplace - Kylie McIn­tosh

NOTH­ING adds trop­i­cal am­bi­ence to a back yard like a thatched Ba­li­nese hut.

This Camp Hill res­i­dence of­fers an ur­ban oa­sis with an out­door space in­cor­po­rat­ing a so­lar-heated salt­wa­ter swim­ming pool framed by tim­ber deck­ing, lush trop­i­cal land­scap­ing and the hut as its cen­tre­piece.

The two-storey home is set on 405sq m and has great views to the city from both the front ve­randa and back deck.

There are four bed­rooms with wardrobes and a sep­a­rate study.


The main bed­room in­cludes an ensuite with dou­ble shower and is fin­ished with cedar sash win­dows and pri­vacy shut­ters.

The open-plan kitchen is fit­ted with qual­ity fix­tures and fit­tings in­clud­ing stone bench­tops, walk-in pantry, 900mm oven, gas cook­top and a dish­washer. There’s also an is­land break­fast bar which houses the dou­ble sink.

The free-flow­ing liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas show­case en­tic­ing city views and opens to the deck. This deck is large enough to con­tain an in­for­mal lounge and eat­ing area.

It’s a cov­ered, pri­vate area sur­rounded by tim­ber shut­ters. Shades and glass bi-folds sep­a­rate the deck from the in­ter­nal liv­ing ar­eas.

The ground level of­fers a spacious rum­pus room open­ing to the tiled, din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment area.

This area makes a great teen re­treat with air­con­di­tion­ing and bed­room num­ber four that also opens to the out­side.

The study, laun­dry and garage are also down­stairs which houses the dou­ble garage with stor­age.

The lush, low-main­te­nance land­scaped grounds com­prise a 5000-litre wa­ter tank with pump.
